Album Review

Guess Who LPs titled Shakin' All Over appeared in both the US and Canada in 1965, but they weren't the same records, though some of the same tracks were included on each release. The American Shakin' All Over was issued on the Scepter label; the Canadian one came out on Quality, and has been reissued on CD, making it much more widely available outside of Canada. The one being addressed in this review is the US version, which actually drew from tracks that appeared on the group's two 1965 Canadian LPs on Quality, Shakin' All Over and Hey Ho (What You Do to Me). Aside from the title track (itself not as good as the Johnny Kidd original), the American LP titled Shakin' All Over was a rather thin effort typical of the period, padding the hit single with various covers and a few Randy Bachman originals. "Stop Teasing Me" — here presented in a milder version than the superior re-recording included on Hey Ho (What You Do to Me) — is one of the most accurate Merseybeat imitations ever waxed, but on the whole this sounds a lot closer to a harder-rocking Gerry & the Pacemakers than the group would have liked to admit a few years later. Since all of the tracks appear on the two 1965 Canadian LPs, and since those Canadian LPs have been reissued on CD, there's little reason to make an effort to find the American Shakin' All Over LP.

If You Grew Up In Winnipeg in the 1960's......

If you grew up In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in the 1960's there was a sharp divide between the South End of town, and the infamous North End. And there were two high schools that represented each part of town, and there were two bands that played at the high school and community club dances. In the South End of town, there was Kelvin High School, and the famous band was Neil Young, and the Squires. And in the North End, it was Chad Allan and the Expressions. Joining them after some time was Burton Cummings, from the Devrons, and they became The Guess Who. And it all seemed to start with Shakin All Over. In retrospect, it was the best of times. You could drop into the Fourth Dimension coffee house and see people like Gordon Lightfoot playing, or you could sneak into the jazz clubs underage and see Lenny Breau do his wizardry on guitar, but nobody cranked it out quite like Chad Allan, the Devrons, and Neil Young. It was a glorious time to be a teenager. And if my memory serves me wrong, and it could because it WAS the sixties, or if I've got some of my facts not quite straight, well then first my apologies in advance, but I'll never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Check this music out, and begin to understand. You'll not regret it. Jeremy Wilson (Kelvin, 1967)

Till We Kissed

the song 'Till We Kissed' is the 'B' side to the 45 'Shakin' All Over'. it is the best song ever released by the Guess Who. Why couldn't they record more songs like that? They ruined themselves like the Bee Gees did with disco.
